My original plan for Alex's birthday cake was to create candy (wafer chocolate) heroes to place on the tiers.
They came out pretty good, I like to think. However, as I discovered around one in the morning...day of party...that they were just too small a space to work with, and the layer of chocolate too thin.
When I attempted to peel them off (and then affix them to a solid, white, candy base), they fractured.
Flash's leg broke off. Maybe he finally ran too fast.
Superman's head became unattached. What's stronger than the man of steel?
There must have been a bullet Diana couldn't stop.
But my long-time hero, Batman, got it the worst. Perhaps it's because he's mortal, with no special powers, freak industrial accidents, magic accessories or alien technology.
He's tough, smart, and gadget-laden, but just a man. He ended up in pieces.
Which led me to plan B.
Oh, well...better luck next time.
